CALL FOR PAPERS
"Romanticism, Environment, Crisis" will highlight the continuing urgency
of the Romantic text at a time when changes in our biosphere threaten to
realize Romanticism's prophetic anxieties, its darkest imaginings.
Ecocriticism has found Romanticism to be crucial ground. How do green
readings of Romantic texts help us understand contemporary environmental
crisis? What is the relation between ecocriticism and environmentalism,
between literature and science?
